Community Garden

Welcome to the Community Garden. A new weekly Wire segment where Oscar Perress watches and reports back on local progressive community and group projects growing in the beautiful garden that is Tāmaki Makaurau. The projects we will try and focus covering are those creatively finding solutions to the problems that they find in our society, especially via the means of bringing people together. The segment will include an interview with one specific group a week, plus a brief guide to the top selection of community events and discussions happening in that upcoming week. 

Come and enjoy the community garden, and remember, you don't have to be a communist to love your community.
